IS THIS THE RIGHT CROSS BAR FOR YOU?
NOT FOR USE with our:
Our cross bars or ‘support bars’ for our premium range of stretcher bars are made from the same quality pine and are strong and straight to offer maximum support for your larger stretched canvas frames.
The Exhibit and Premier Stretcher bars use the same cross bar as each other. Unlike Gallery bars, the Exhibit and Premier bars are notched to accept a cross bar so that it becomes integral to the frame without tacking. These cross bars are also supplied with wedges which allow the cross bars freedom to move when tensioning.
As a guide our customers generally consider it sensible to support the Exhibit bar from around 40” and the Premier perhaps from around 30” (both bars are notched to accept brace bars from 30").
